Default Re: Monroe Killer

There are lots of variants of this pattern. In Flies for Atlantic Salmon, Stewart and Allen spell it "Munroe" Killer. They specify a simpler blue-dyed guinea hackle throat; a more complicated tag/tail assembly including silver tinsel, yellow floss, golden pheasant crest and red hackle tips; a silver rather than gold rib; and a wing of layered (from bottom to top) orange, yellow, and black bucktail -- stating that this version of the dressing "is most popular on the Miramichi". I like the Stewart/Allen version as an alternative to the Thunder and Lightning, since it has the same basic color scheme but is less complicated to tie. I have also seen simpler versions omitting the tag and tail, and with the three-layer wing reduced even further to merely orange- or yellow-dyed squirrel tail.

Your Right, what i did here is use the basic color scheme for the winter steelhead in rivers I fish and find this effective.
